CARING FOR EACH OTHER, LEARNING FOR A LIFETIME. PRENDRE SOIN DE L'AUTRE - L'APPRENTISSAGE POUR LA VIE

Sep 2020 - Start-up during COVID

As we returned from school closure in the spring, it was clear that we needed to reassess our focus. At the forefront of our concern was welcoming staff and students back to the building after such a long time and making sure that they felt safe and connected to the school community and each other. We also were aware that the previous focus on communicating learning was likely still to be a need and so wanted to keep that in our learning intentions.

As a community we have developed this inquiry question as our focus:

How can a focus on connection and core competencies help students better communicate their thinking and understanding themselves as learners? 

Please see the section 'Our Learning' for examples of our actions and evidence with this refreshed focus.
